I am a postdoc at Princeton University. My Sponsor is Chris Skinner. When I was a graduate student at Columbia, my advisor was Eric Urban.

My email address is sm7928 "at" princeton "dot" edu.

For an introduction to some of my research, here is a video of a talk I gave in the Princeton/IAS Number Theory Seminar in March of 2023.

I am currently an organizer for this seminar.

On the Bernstein--Zelevinsky classification and epsilon factors in families. This paper introduces and studies a notion of family of smooth admissible representations of p-adic GL_{n}, and under mild hypotheses, proves the coherence of epsilon factors for such families, as well as for arbitrary products and functorial lifts of such.

Eisenstein series for G_{2} and the symmetric cube Bloch--Kato conjecture. This paper does what my thesis below does, but under less restrictions (in particular the level 1 hypothesis of my thesis is removed here). In the appendix, I also expand the discussion of Arthur's conjectures for G_{2} relative to what is said in my thesis.

Eisenstein series for G_{2} and the symmetric cube Bloch--Kato conjecture. This is my Ph.D. thesis, which essentially contains the paper below. Besides what is described below, in this thesis I p-adically deform a certain Eisenstein series for G_{2} in a generically cuspidal family, and I use the Galois representations attached to cuspidal members of this family to construct a certain nontrivial class in the Selmer group of the symmetric cube of the Galois representation attached to a cuspidal eigenform of level 1.

Multiplicity of Eisenstein series in cohomology and applications to GSp_{4} and G_{2}. In this paper I locate every instance of certain Eisenstein series in the cohomology of GSp_{4} and G_{2} and prove that my list is exhaustive. This is a first step in my thesis.

I have a math blog, and a blog about extreme metal.

I walked from NYC to Boston during the summer of 2018.
